Who is Char?

We moved to Michigan in 2014 and fell in love with the scenery and the people. In 2016, we attended a Keuring event, which is a judging venue of Friesian foals, mares, and stallions. We were awestruck. We had only admired the horses in movies and were overwhelmed by their beauty up close. As spectators, we had tons of questions about the horses and the event and found the community willing to educate us. While talking to owners we soon learned that there was a need to support them and others in the equine industry with digital marketing and video support, so we’ve made that our mission.

We both love horses, we love road trips and we’d been looking for a way to work together. Seemed like a match made in heaven. SO, here we are, pooling our talents and passion, along with friends in the creative and tech industries, ready to support those in the Equine industry, starting with our Friesian friends.

Dreams Take Time-August 2010

Today is our 23rd wedding anniversary.  My husband and I went to see Nanny McPhee, came home and grilled steaks. (Yes, we are carnivores).  All day I've been reflecting back on the day we exchanged vows and all the years in between then and now.  WOW! We come so far and both have grown personally and professionally.  Bill is still the love of my life and people are always amazed that we are still so very close.  I tell them that marriage is like a garden; we till the  soil and plant the seeds in the beginning but you just can't leave it alone.  You have to water it regularly, pull weeds and keep the plants healthy until harvest. 

Then I started thinking about Studio Kinate and realized that there are some similarities between a marriage and building a business.  In a marriage and business, there are no shortcuts to success and I forgot that.  I want everything now! I want to put talented people I've come to know to work.  I want to produce all these great stories, today.  I want to pop everything into a machine so that Studio Kinate will pop out as the next Disney or Pixar or whatever. However, there is a reality that I have to deal with and when it comes to business, I am learning patience. I have no problem with patience when it comes to gardening (hello--farm girl!)  Now now I have to put those things I've learned into practice in building this dream.

So, today I will put into practice those things I've learned both in gardening and in marriage.  I will practice patience and will tend to building my studio.
